We have plenty of baby poultry in progress around here.
I hatched out some mutt ducks at school for the kiddos to observe:
Today an incubator full of Pilgrim goslings is working on hatching:
Scrambles, our Buff Orpington hen, and Violet, one of our Australorps, both went broody and are sitting on Indian Runner duck eggs and Pilgrim goose eggs:
Abigail, our Pilgrim goose, went broody a while ago but then left her nest. I put those eggs in the incubator to finish hatching; however, she laid a new clutch in a nest she built under the duck house and now is sitting quite seriously. I think she may actually finish the job this time!
In a few weeks when work winds down for the year I will resume posting here more regularly. I also have started a new blog related solely to our farm:
